ASUNA is new talent within the Japanese sound artist and experimental music scene. Creating experimental music and installation work from a very young age during the late 90’s, he has gone on to become a pioneer within the experimental ambient / drone / improvisation scene in Tokyo, influencing and collaborating with many other Japanese electronic musicians. He has also released a prolific number of albums for Europe, America and Japanese labels.
Alongside his first major work, “Each Organ” (2002), a sound installation reconsidering the concept of etymology, he also produces experimental
composition works, recording with acoustic instruments and electronics under the title “100 Toys”, a performance that uses many tiny toys to create a multi-layered and fascinating plastic universe of drones, loops, sonic moire and occasional pop implosions.
ASUNA’s current touring work 100 KEYBOARDS is a live music performance featuring over 100 keyboards. Multiple sound waves on the same frequency are diseminated in multiple directions, creating a complex distribution of acoustic pressure. This causes what is known as a moiré pattern of sound interference. In this site-specific listening experience, you will hear subtle variations of sound interference and resonance that vary based on your location in the performance space.
